Two people have been charged with second-degree murder following the death of a 15-year-old girl in The Pas, Manitoba on December 14.
RCMP arrested Dylan Caribou, 19, and a 15-year-old girl on Thursday in the death of the teen from Opaskwayak Cree Nation.
Police say it’s believed the victim knew both of the suspects.
The teen’s body was found at around 7 a.m. on Bignell Avenue near the Hudbay Rail Station.
“It is our hope that these arrests and charges provide the victim’s family, friends, as well as the community, some comfort,” said Superintendent Michael Koppang, officer in charge of Major Crime Services for the Manitoba RCMP.
“Under these tragic circumstances over the past week, our homicide investigators were in the community, working hard with local RCMP officers to bring the perpetrators to justice.”
Both suspects will appear in court on Christmas Eve.
